The main characters are Vito and Wilhelm which names mean full of life and strong-willed warrior.

We are developing The Reward into a series (along with a comic and DnD campaign book) you can see the now finished campaign at:

The Reward was made at The Animation Workhop. It is directed by Mikkel Mainz and Kenneth Ladekjer, Bros for life. See end credits for the team :) We now made Sun Creature Studio, a company made to bring you more series and films like this (Together with Bo Juhl). For more about The Reward:

Rated 5 / 5 stars

One of the best animated shorts iv ever seen. Aside from the smart humour , it has a good story and most of all , it does have a meaning and it is indeed a great , strong lesson. I simply loved the ending.

Technically the art is great and the animation super smooth. A well-deserved 5 star score.

One of the best shorts on newgrounds :) Love the style too


Rated 4 / 5 stars

Very enjoyable! There were a few scenes that I felt were a bit rushed, and the blonde hero not bandaging himself on his own didn't really make sense to me, but it was still a great ride. The ending is definitely a good payoff.

This is the apex of short films.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Beautifully animated, and such an amazing concept! I love the fictional world that you guys created for this animation! Vito and Wilhelm, although they didn't speak, developed and bonded very nicely throughout the story. I just can't even describe how amazing this is with words! I can't wait to watch more from you guys!
